“… Therefore we are continually instructed and enlightened on matters of spiritual importance. It comes line upon line, precept upon precept, until we gain a fulness of light an knowledge. This becomes a great protection to us– to each of us personally. It is a protection also for the church.
No work is more of a protection to this church than temple work and genealogical research which supports it. No work is more spiritually refining. No work we do gives us more power. No work requires a higher standard of righteousness.
Our labors in the temple cover us with a shield and a protection, both individually and as a people.
It is in the ordinances of the temple that we are placed under covenant to Him– it is there we become a covenant people.
If we will accept the revelation concerning temple ordinance work, if we will enter into our covenants without reservation or apology, the Lord will protect us. We will receive inspiration sufficient for the challenges of life.” Boyd K. Packer
